Words to Live By

All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me]. John 6:37

Will Jesus welcome and receive all who come to Him in childlike faith, and turn you away? Never!

Will He forgive the sins of others who have trusted in His cleansing blood, but leave you condemned? Never!

Will He adopt into His family everyone who has been born of His Spirit, but leave you an orphan? Never!

Will He lead the lives of others who are following Him, but misguide you? Never!

Will He have fellowship with those who walk in His light, but shut you out? Never!

Will He intercede for those who look to Him as their High Priest, but fail to represent you? Never!

Will He comfort those who have sorrow, but keep from wiping your tears? Never!

Will His grace be sufficient for our weaknesses, but insufficient for yours? Never!

Will He extend His kindness to those who hope in His mercies, but leave you under a cloud of judgment? Never!

Will He fulfill the desires of those who fear Him, but leave you destitute? Never!

Will He love others with an everlasting love, but withhold His love from you? Never!

Will He take unto Himself all those who wait for His appearing, but leave you behind? Never!

Hi Jocelyn,

Each one of these statements is an affirmation that I can trust, rely and depend upon the character of God; He will hear, forgive and love me. There is much to be encouraged as I read this. Thank you for sharing it.

Blessings and peace.
